ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will today tour The Arc, a facility for the developmentally disabled in North Brunswick, as he pushes to close institutions in favor of group homes.
Michelle Sherry’s 58-year-old sister Denise spent nearly three decades in institutions.
“It’s like a, I don’t want to say, a warehouse facility,” she told WCBS 880 reporter Jim Smith.
But the switch was made to a group home in Trenton 30 years ago, a decision Michelle said was a godsend.
